If you decide to list a hoarder house, showing it before everything has been cleaned out, you’ll need to get creative in your presentation. Seeing the piles of junk that have piled up over time can send many people running the other way. You want to help your buyers see what can be. Highlight the big windows, the big yard, or the new appliances. Whatever is great about the house, make sure it is highlighted front and center. People base a lot of their buying decision on their first impressions of the property. If you are selling a hoarder house in Cypress the traditional way, you’ll want to do everything you can to make your prospective buyer’s impressions of the house a good one! When you highlight the great things about the house, hopefully, the not so great things aren’t as apparent. That said, you will need to disclose every potential problem with the house to your potential buyers, not doing so can be considered fraud.

2. Cleanup and Get Rid of Things

A lot of the items will have to go. You need to be mentally prepared for this before you say goodbye to your stuff. Take heart in knowing that your usable items are going to people who need them. If you have a lot of things you are keeping out of sentiment, it can be a good idea to take photos, which can be stored digitally, not taking up any space. Even if you decide to print a few out, a photo album takes up much less space than your boxes of trophies, old clothing, and books you don’t want to forget about. You can implement some of the strategies taught by Marie Kondo to eliminate all of the excess clutter once and for all. You need to be ruthless and remind yourself that stuff is just stuff. If you really want to sell your house without the help of a direct buyer, you may find that you have some work to do. Your only option is to get in there and do the work.

3. Spend Some Time Organizing

When you see all of the items piled up, filling closets, cupboards, and rooms, you may fee very overwhelmed. It can be difficult to even know where to begin. You’ll want to organize yourself in the way that makes the most sense. You can start by putting like-kind items together. This way you can go through said items, determining what to give away and what to keep. Or you could plan to go room by room through the house, deciding what to do with the items as you go. You’ll want to designate space for the items you want to take with you, what you want to sell, what you want to give away, and what you want to throw in the trash. Not only do you need to organize the house, but you will also need to organize your plan of attack.
